Market veteran Christophe Neves to represent Skyline in continental Europe
London, 31 May 2023: Skyline Partners Ltd., the parametric laboratory which works with underwriters, brokers, institutions, and affinity groups to develop solutions to a wide variety of insurability challenges, has engaged market veteran Christophe Neves to act as Skyline's continental European representative. Based in Paris, Neves will focus on business development and client relations as Skyline extends its unique parametric services offering to customers in France and further afield.
A qualified actuary, Neves began his career at Axa and AIG Europe, then moved to Allianz Worldwide Partners, where he was Group Actuarial and Underwriting Services Director. He then turned to start-ups and insurTech as, in 2016, co-founder and CEO of digital platform Yakman; in 2018 as Chief Risk Officer at newly re-formed AIG Europe SA; and in 2020 as COO Risk and Capital of Wakam, a digital B2B2C insurer. This year he launched InsurtechStudio, which supports startups in the process of product development.
"It is terrific to have an individual of Christophe's stature supporting Skyline's continued growth," said Laurent Sabatié, Skyline Partners' Co-Founder and Executive Director. "Parametric insurance products are new, and promise a radical change to the way businesses are insured. Christophe's wide connections in the continental insurance sector, his deep understanding of insurance product development, and his broad leadership experience in the entrepreneurial environment of insurTech will be a huge asset for Skyline as we grow."
Neves said: "I am excited to support Skyline in their work to transform data and ideas into practical insurance products. Without them, only the largest brokers, reinsurers, and a handful of specialists have had the resources to create, operate, and market viable parametric products, but Skyline's services allow anyone to launch a parametric insurance solution. I look forward to showing colleagues old and new how Skyline can create and manage innovative new products on their behalf."
Skyline Co-Founder and Executive Director Gethin Jones said: "Now that we have live insurance products with a range of partners and clients in the UK, US, Caribbean, and on the continent, demand is multiplying for our services as the parametric catalyser. Christophe promises to be an enormously valuable resource as we grow the company and the global market for parametric insurance solutions."
